Well I guess I'm 20 now, I'm no longer in my teens. Yesterday was probably the best birthday
that I've had in awhile; usually they suck because I get no presents and my family end up fighting. The day started off normal, when I woke up everyone had gone to work so I was home alone for most of the day. Then at night we went out for dinner and my Dad paid for that and then went home and cake, which according to my Mum was potato, I didn't really taste it but the cake was very pretty never less. My Mum gave me $100
and I was starting to think my brother really didn't get the iPod
for me even though they were being shifty
Tuesday night because he still hadn't given it to me and where had done the obligatory photos and birthday song. He told me to go take a photo with "Eddie" which is a toy elephant he's had since it was little, it's almost as old as me (I'm surprised
it's still in once piece), so anyway I go grab him and underneath is his old iPod Nana with a note saying "here's your iPod
" and then something about cake. I get back to the kitchen and my Mum tells him to give it already and he tells me to go where I would make a cake, I'm a bit o_0 at this stage because there's various cupboards, and he basically made me look in each one before I found a wrapped up present in the very back. As I was un-wrapping I said I'd be really disappointed if it's not what I think, it was the 32GB iPod Touch
($627) along with Belkin
screen protectors/overlay ($20) and a leather case ($40). He said it was too expensive to buy everything on his own so my Mum went halves with him.
It's so anti-climatic
because all I want to do is fiddle with it but for the past hour and a half it's been syncing all my songs (all 4797
of them). I need to delete some songs I don't listen too or I won't have space because my old iPod was 40GB. I'm excited because it had wifi
which means I can use the internet from bed again (for those days where you just want to stay in your nice warm bed). I'd been using it via my mobile phone but lately 3Mobile have been a bitch and the internet won't work, yet a street down it does. I'm still bloody paying the $20 a month for the internet because I use it at Deakin but I don't even get close to using all the 500MB (Shaz and I where even watching YouTube
clips at an attempt to use up some of it, sure made that boring lecture go by faster). My mobile does have wifi too, but my brother never set it up for me again ever since I took it to get fixed and everything was wiped clean, but he'll do it for the iPod because there's a bunch of internet related things on it.
I got Birthday wishes via text message from most
of my friends, two didn't send me anything (I bet you can guess who lookatmoiye7
), they probably forgot, they know my birthday is around now but probably not exactly when
it is. Also a big thank you to epic2dream
who brought me a virtual birthday gift and nineh
who both made me banners!!
